Advancing Border Pedagogies: Understandings of Citizenship through Comparisons of Home to School Contexts
Salinas, Cinthia; Vickery, Amanda E.; Franquiz, Maria
High School Journal, v99 n4 p322-336 Sum 2016
Border pedagogies recognize citizenship as a contentious privilege afforded to some but not others. In reconciling the multiple and often conflicting renditions of citizen/ citizenship, this qualitative single case study found that preservice teachers benefit from examining the great civic divide between home and school and in confronting spaces that value citizens/citizenship differently. In doing so, we argue that dislodging a teacher education candidate's previously held assumptions works to broaden understandings of a community of wealth and the importance of linguistically and culturally diverse experiences as preservice teachers embody opportunities for participation in a democracy.
